    @NurseMandie:  Jewelry is tough, because it’s all about their personal style. If these are things to wear on the wedding day, I would assume they’re not going to wear them again, and wouldn’t spend too much. I spent about $25 on bracelets for my girls, knowing they were cute for the wedding, but might not be their taste. Then I spent another $75-90 getting them all non-wedding related gifts.

    @NurseMandie:  I bought their hair combs for the wedding, but I expect them to also wear them again when they wear their dresses, as their dresses are not typical “bridal” but could be worn to any kind event. I just don’t have the money to go all-out on gifts. We are also buying the grooms mens ties.

    @NurseMandie:  Yeah, I think that’s a good idea!

    I would love to be given a tumbler 🙂 But, some advice if you don’t mind, perhaps don’t mention your wedding on the cups & instead get a tumbler for each that you think they would love (maybe not even matching) that they will want to use again & again.

    I got them each a necklace to wear at the wedding $30, and a $50 giftcard to spend as they wish. For my maid of honor $100 gift card

    $65 to have their hair done, $20 for a personalized hanger, and $25 for a robe for all 5 bridesmaids. I also gave two of them a $50 credit card to help pay for their dress ($165 + tax and alterations) because I knew it would be tight.
